There hasn’t been a new update for a while – We’ve been very busy with multiple on-site projects, multiple planning applications and the ever-increasing pile of admin that keeps glaring at me across the office. I’ll see about hiring someone to try and organise it all but until then I’ll just try and avoid it as best I can. This month sees the on-site project at Achara House Hotel expand in scope again, The Farm Shop and Restaurant in Renfrewshire get planning permission as well as its funding, a couple of small-project completion certificates issued and a few unexpected projects come back on-line. However this week’s focus is the impending completion to two projects we have been documenting on these page; The Treehouse at Monachyle Mhor and the Lodges at Invertrossachs. It never fails to amaze me how complex simple things usually become. A small building is that much harder as there is almost no part of it you can delegate to another design team member – hence a degree of relief at getting our teeth into some larger projects over the winter months. However as we are gluttons for punishment we still have a few accelerated timescale micro-projects to finish for the early 2020 season – so plenty more remote, soaking wet and freezing site meetings on the horizon…however all I need to do is remember my long-forgotten 8am commute on the Central Line to remind myself that this is living the dream!
